Sky Sports understands Dutch Eredivisie side Cambuur Leeuwarden are in talks with Manchester City about extending the loan of youngster Albert Rusnak.
The 20-year-old is with the Dutch outfit until January, but boss Henk de Jong is reportedly keen to keep him until end of season.
The Slovakian midfielder has excelled for Cambuur, who are currently riding high in sixth place in the Eredvisie.
Two goals and two assists represents an impressive return from the talented youngster, and has led to Cambuur reportedly opening talks about extending his stay.
Rusnak seems to be open to the move. Last month Dutch paper Algemeen Dagblad reported Rusnak as saying: “In the Eredivisie, the focus is not on the physical, but on technique. Therefore I am here in the right place.
“Manchester City is following me, so I am told. I prefer to end the season here at Cambuur, but that decision is not in my hands. That is not the prettiest feeling.”
Rusnak’s contract is up for renewal in the summer, and should his form continue, City boss Manuel Pellegrini will be keen to secure his services for the long term.
